I am stuck on the step with the tunic band and the interfacing that it didn't tell me to make. I'm not quite clear on how to attach the tunic band

You scaled this pattern down, right? I have 50 inch tall son for whom I am making the tunic, dickey and robe. Any suggestions for scaling it down this much? Thanks for a great review and awesome pictures!

Great costume! Your fabric choice is perfect, Mary.

I think the Harry Potter comment comes because your DS has glasses... That's the only thing that occurs to me, since OBVIOUSLY, Harry Potter would be wearing BLACK robes, and maybe a red-and-gold Gryffindor scarf, and carrying an 11 inch holly-and-phoenix feather wand. Sheesh...some people...*lol* (OK...I read the whole HP series while I was in hospital...I'm not really THAT much of a HP addict...) Great costume, Mary...

Yes, he really does look like a Jedi! The dickey thing - LOL. I'll have to remember to make a new word for it if I ever encouner such a situation.

[email protected] finding the dickey somehow unseemly. Teenagers are hysterical. You're right, this is a faboo pattern - I bet my hubby and/or brother would like something like this too. They never grow up, ya know...

Looks very nice. I like the material choice also. And yes, you would think the light saber would be a give-away.

Hi Peach! No, I think brown canvas would be too stiff for this robe. You really want something that's heavy, fluid, and drapey. But go for it! I started with the smallest, easiest piece (the obi sash) and that gave me the confidence to keep going.

Mary--My husband wants me to make this costume for him so he can take our dd trick or treating. I was kind of scared because it looked difficult, now I have the confidence, after reading your review and viewing the picture, to tackle this project. Do you think I could use a brown canvas for the robe? Thanks!
